Unhappy Corrupt graphics when playing!

Hi guys! I was playing Frozen Throne when I noticed that some graphical corruptions occur. It is happening too fast i can't even time my "print screen" right. After watching it for 30 seconds (the corruptions), my pc hung up on me. I think the problem is with the video card. I would like to know is this are the symptoms of a dying video card? T_T
I am using this pc for at least a year now. My specs are in my sig. Thanks in advance!

It could be a couple of things. First, try to update your drivers to the latest one. Reseat your graphic card. It maybe loose. It also may be overheating. So monitor the temperatures of it, during load. Use software such as ATI Tool or Everest.

Should have a lifespan range of 5-10 years. I have a graphic card, that's still working after 7 years.
